The Department of Art History at Dartmouth College is committed to exploring the material and visual culture of diverse peoples, places, and periods in intellectually searching ways. The broad and active research of our faculty supports an undergraduate curriculum that spans many centuries, cultures, and media. Our general courses seek to introduce students to the various histories of architecture, painting, sculpture, and graphic arts, while our more advanced offerings tackle specific historical phenomena or particular thematic problems in the study of visual culture. We aim to promote art historical inquiry at the highest levels both as part of a broad liberal arts education and as a discipline in its own right.
